AT WHOLESALE AND RETAIL.

CLOTHING,

July, 3t.

D. & J. DEVLIN

33 & 35 JOHN, corner of NASSAU STREET,

NEW-YORK.

THE Subscribers beg to call the attention of Merchants and others, visiting New-York, to the fact that theirs is the only establishment in the city where Clothing of the most superior make, and latest styles, is to be found in the most extensive variety, at both WHOLESALE AND RETAIL. Their object being to meet the demand of Clothing Dealers throughout the country for a superior style of clothing-as contradistinguished from the common slop work to be found at the majority of houses--as also to enable any gentleman who should require à FIT-OUT, in the best taste, to suit himself, from all the prevailing modes of the day. For this purpose one of the firm visits, each season, the various European markets, so as to select the newest things, and thereby save to our customers the importer's profit. Their aim is to supply the very best and most fashionable clothing at lower prices than any other house in the trade.

An examination of the stock, before purchasing elsewhere, is respectfully solicited.

D. & J. DEVLIN,

33 & 35 JOHN STREET, CORNER OF NASSAU.

WHIG REVIEW

In the original Prospectus of the AMERICAN REVIEW, issued at Washington by Mr. Colton, its former Proprietor and Editor, a number of the leading Whig Members of the Twenty-seventh Congress (1845-6) subscribed their names to the following resolution:

"Earnestly approving the plan of such a National organ, long needed and of manifest importance, the undersigned agree to contribute for its pages, from time to time, such communications as may be necessary to set forth and defend the doctrines held by the United Whig Party of the Union. Signed by Geo. P. Marsh, Daniel D. Barnard, J. McPherson Berrien, J. R. Ingersoll, E. Joy Morris, T. L. Clingman, Daniel Webster, R. C. Winthrop, Thomas Butler King, Hamilton Fish, J. P. Kennedy, J. Collamer, Wm. S. Archer, Rufus Choate, Alexander H. Stephens."

An engraved portrait of some distinguished person will be found in every number of the Review. These will usually be portraits of living American Statesmen, and whenever that is possible, will be accompanied with an authentic Memoir of the person represented.

The first objects of the Review are of course political; it is designed to set forth and defend the principles, the measures, and the men of the UNITED WHIG PARTY of the Union It has been a matter of just reproach to that Party, that though it embraces its due proportion of the intelligence and learning of the country, it has had no Quarterly or Monthly Organ devoted to the expression and defense of its opinions and measures. The conductors of the American Review have done what in them lies to remove this reproach, by securing contributions from sources of ability and truth.

The literary department of the Review will agree in spirit with the political.
TERMS.-$5 a year, in advance.

DAGUERREOTYPE

PORTRAITS AND FAMILY CROUPS.

EIGHT FIRST PREMIUMS-SILVER MEDALS

Awarded at the Great Fairs in Boston, New-York, and Philadelphia,

CAN BE SEEN AT

M. A. & S. ROOT'S GALLERIES,

363 Broadway, cor. Franklin st., N. Y., & 140 Chestnut st., Phila.

ADMISSION FREE TO ALL.

THE MESSES. ROOT having yielded to the many urgent solicitations of their numerous friends to establish a branch of their

CELEBRATED DAGUERREOTYPE GALLERY

in this city, have been engaged for some time past in fitting up an

ELEGANT SUITE OF ROOMS

AT

363 BROADWAY COR. FRANKLIN ST.,

where they shall be most happy to see all their numerous friends, as also strangers and citizens generally. The acknowledged high character this celebrated establishment has acquired for its pictures, and the progressive improvements made in the art, we trust, will be fully sustained, as each department at this branch is conducted by some of the same experienced and skilful artists that have been connected with it from the commencement.

The pictures taken at this establishment are pronounced by artists and scientific men unrivalled for depth of tone and softness of light and shade, while they display all the artistic arrangement of the highest effort of the Painter.

Citizens and strangers visiting the Gallery can have their miniatures or portraits taken in this unique style, and neatly set in Morocco Cases, Gold Lockets or Breastpins, Rings, &c., in a few minutes.

Heretofore an almost insurmountable obstacle has presented itself to the production of family likenesses, in regard to chiluren. The Messrs. Root are happy to state that through an entirely new discovery of theirs, this difficulty has been overcome, as the time of sitting will not exceed two or three seconds in fair, or ten to fifteen seconds in cloudy weather.

N.B.-LADIES are recommended to dress in figured or dark materials, avoiding whites or light blues. A shawl or scarf gives a pleasing effect to the picture.

FOR GENTLEMEN.-A black or figured vest; also figured scarf or cravat, so that the bosom be not too much exposed.

FOR CHILDREN.-Plaid, striped or figured dresses, lace work. Ringlets add much to the beauty of the picture.

The best hour for Children is from 11 A.-M. to 2 P. M. All others from 8 A. M. to 6 P. M.

Jan., 51, 12t.
